I don’t want this blog to focus on the negatives of my Crohn’s, but I feel that they should be addressed just to give an overview and you can get a slight insight into 80% of my life as a couch potato!
I was diagnosed with Crohn’s 5 years ago after struggling for over a year. I spent a lot of time on the toilet, in pain, feeling very embarrassed and dirty.
Over the years, with thanks to the great support I am lucky to have, I have slowly started to build my confidence up and feeling ready to take on whatever this disease throws at me (preferably not surgery though, as I have a major fear of needles!)
So fistulas, dietary requirements (that I never follow) and pain aside – I am ready to give my new found energy my all, while doped up on painkillers, exploring the capital of Scotland, one experience at a time!
If you have any questions regarding Crohn’s or just fancy a wee chat, please get in touch. I get bored rather easily when I am flaring and everyone else is living their life.
